The Magic Of Billy Joel

Of all the great music I’ve loved in my life, much of which I’ve posted here, there’s none that’s more dear to me than that of Billy Joel and Elton John. The thing is, I’ve featured Elton John on this blog far more often than I have the great Billy Joel. I’d like to begin to remedy that imbalance with this post.

But how, exactly, does one select from such an incredible career? Well, not for the first time, I’ve literally spent hours searching for, and listening to, videos of his music, trying to narrow it down. Here’s what I’ve come up with…

You Should Never Argue With A Crazy Mi-Mi-Mi-Mi-Mind!

I’ve mentioned before how I’ve been allowing my youngest son living with me. You know, the one who asked if he could move in with me because it was closer to the college that he now no longer attends? The one who promised that his presence here wouldn’t be a burden to me, and said that having someone to look out for me would, in fact, be a good thing? Yeah, that’s the one!

Santana!

You know, sometimes I envy the bloggers who’re able to pick a certain area of coverage and then stick to that area. I, on the other hand, have so many things I want to blog about that “I Want Ice Water!” is anything but a “focused” blog. The problem with having such an “unfocused” mind is that there are just so many topics that, despite their importance, I just never seem to get around to covering as well as I’d have liked to. An example of that is music. Yeah I know, you look at the long list of artists on my Music On This Blog page and it seems like I’ve done a pretty fair job of covering the music I like. But then something like the recent Kennedy Center Honors comes along and I’m reminded, once again, of just how short that list is in comparison to what it should be!

Funny GIF-Song Combos

I’m getting pretty good at bypassing that Gallery Mosaic thing to manufacture my own animated GIF blocks. Which gives me a great excuse to finally do these GIF-Song combos I’ve been wanting to do for a while…
